What is the Circular Carbon Economy?
The Circular Carbon Economy (CCE) can be described as the utilisation of residual biomass streams for the creation of products and services that enable value creation from biobased materials that traditionally may not have had a use.
The thermal conversion of biomass to biochar is just one of the ways the circular carbon economy can be realised. Biochar is a material that has an ever-growing list of potential applications, encompassing the agricultural, horticultural, environmental and water treatment sectors alongside many more. In many cases, it can be reused or returned to land as a soil amendment, sequestering carbon in the process and giving rise to the phrase circular carbon.
A successful circular carbon economy can aid in the creation of sustainable business and employment opportunities.
